These nourishing words are antidotes to the fear-based, limiting scripts we’ve had on repeat for years.
Some are sprinkled through my book How To Be Loving, some are recent inspirational pieces from the Podcast, all of them are created just for you, With Love.

“First they came for…”

Martin Niemöller was a prominent Lutheran minister in Germany. After Adolf Hitler came into power in 1933, Niemöller became an outspoken critic of Hitler’s interference in the Protestant church.

Niemöller is perhaps the best remembered for his post-war statement:

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist…”

7 Virtues

Working to embody a virtue helps to break down the blockages to one’s Soul. It’s a karmic win-win! The higher vibration of the virtues melts the lower vibration of the ego.

I Love You

Divine Love—absolute inclusiveness—is the flowing substance of all joy and the medicine for all sorrow.

It’s the revelation and the refuge. It’s why we exist and how we make life come to life. Divine Love is the Truth of who we are. May it animate us in every way. May we walk by its Light and magnify it everywhere we are.

May All Be So Blessed

When you’re noticing your good fortune—from true love to food on the table… and *at the same time* you’re keenly aware that not everyone is doing as well in this moment… then:⁣ ⁣ 

  1. a) give a prayer of thanks⁣ 
  2. b) wrap with this:

“May all be so blessed.” When you’re blessed, bless.⁣

The Wound-To-Healing Sequence

We will heal the wound of rejection, the habit of repression, shame, guilt, and our separation anxiety and abandonment issues all in cohesion. Forgiving our families is the ultimate in taking responsibility for our own healing and wholeness.

We go into the muck and fertility of our human roots, we face the hardship and blessings of it all. And we find out that the Life Source has been holding and parenting us all along, never to abandon us.

Love it all

The intelligence of Love dissolves eons of dogma that tells us to prove our “worth” and sort who’s superior or inferior.

Spirituality is really the practice of thinking with Love. And we can effectively train ourselves to keep returning to Love via our thoughts over and over again.

Being Loving doesn’t necessarily mean feeling more. It means feeling everything with more Love.

The days of self-centered bucket lists are over.

What if next to photos of dream homes and hot bods on our vision boards, we also glued on images of lush forests and happy neighbours? 

What if… before we set out to get it, we asked this most beautiful question: How will my fulfillment bless (or harm) the collective?

Right here, right now, feet on ground, sent from above.

Remember who you are
when you’re in the kitchen cooking up opinions
When you speak. When you weep.
Before your scroll on the fear…

Keep in mind
That it’s a New Day
And the Heart is the authority here.

How do you move steadily through an epic shift for the human race? How do you do what needs to be done for your Soul’s work? And for the next generation? How do you steer with Love when you’re dealing with polarized personal conflict and a world that looks like it’s out of control?

Focus on what YOU have the immediate power to control:
how you perceive yourself.

In this practice, we’re blessing and offering virtues from our heart center. 

Heart centered offerings come from a place of nonduality and inclusiveness. So we understand that the “other”—people, relationships, places, communities, segments of society—is a reflection of us.

We’re offering our Forgiveness, release, and Compassion.
